Lavender and subtle? Yes, that works!
It seems to be the lavender, which is perfectly mixed with other spices here. Lavender can be soooo dominant, but here he is taken heartily by the hand of his companions and gets a good-natured gag, so that he can not roar to the fore...

But I should start from the beginning! So. to preface this: I'm not a professional, especially I can't name the fragrance notes with any certainty. But I do have a very fine nose.

The Eau pour homme was a blind purchase, already my third from Armand Basi. I also discovered the brand on vacation, must have been so 2007 or 2008.

The bottle: Goes so, lies well in the hand, only this blue plastic cladding seems rather cheap. But I do not care. The fragrance I wear all day on the body with me around, the bottle remains at home and no one looks at him.

Very fresh, tart, kind of fleeting entry that reminds me of lavender and watermelon. I think it's called "aquatic" here. A strong wake-up call in the morning, as if your perfume wants to wish you a happy start to the day. It's only in the first 20 minutes that this pungent sillage is there. Convenient: if you go out shortly after application, your clothes get a pleasant fragrance touch.

After that, the fragrance screws down significantly in strength, but remains masculine fresh. Although no soap note is in it, you smell the whole day somehow freshly washed. What I like especially well: the fragrance is composed quite round. I can - for lack of experience - not call the components all by name.

What a perfume must do for me, is here but optimally implemented: None of the ingredients pushes itself into the foreground, but they all create a new harmonious togetherness. Like a good mixed choir, in which you can hear that different voices are there, but no single one is more conspicuous than the others or even drowns them out. Especially the discreet role of the lavender, as described at the beginning, is downright masterful. Lavender and discreet? Yes, it works! I wouldn't have thought so. In addition, in tiny amounts "woody", "spicy", "powdery", "celery" - all just above the perceptual limit and you have to sniff carefully for the individual nuances. I really enjoy this.

The durability is quite excellent. The fragrance has reached its long plateau phase after 2 hours at the latest, and he lingers on the whole day. You just have to keep the minimum amount in the morning. So please dose significantly bolder than other perfumes.
I do 6 spritzes on the skin. For me, this is already very much. I do not want to make my fellow men by a Wumms fragrance cloud on me.

If you want a sillage fresh kick in between, you can 1x briefly re-spray. But that's just for fun and enjoyment of the fragrance and not necessary.

The color I associate with the fragrance is light greenish yellow. It reminds me to a small part also very very remotely of what is wafting in the air in the men's perfume department of Karstadt.... Perhaps you know what I mean by that. Some will find it awful, I, on the other hand, love it.

Overall: For me a super composition, fresh-light-unobtrusive and tart. I would recommend it for athletic men, up to about 50 years. It is something for lively types. No sweetness, no opanote, nothing biting. Office-appropriate. I love it. You call it arbitrary, maybe you're right. I call it harmonious. Online quite inexpensive to reorder, around 25 euros are very well invested.

A spiritual walk through Kyoto's Bamboo Grove
Armand Basi l'Eau pour Homme is another blind buy I've ordered long ago after I got the fall-winter time Wild Forest first, yet never tested so far. Only this morning, when I stared at my summer collection, I felt like wearing it and. Whoa! Right off the bat, a gentle and fresh sea breeze was blowing over my body and hitting my soul.
Although I've never visited Kyoto, I've read that the northern area of Arashiyama is pretty famous for its bamboo groves. It's a forest, but unlike any that I'd ever seen before. Instead of trees, there's an endless supply of bamboo stalks. They line the path through the grove, whispering in the breeze. When the wind blows, you can hear the rustling and squeaking of the stems that bend in the breeze. And when the light filters through the grove at the right angle, it creates a truly magical atmosphere. Of course, even if the sun filtered through my bathroom window, the atmosphere and aura were extraordinary.
Probably just a placebo effect, but Armand Basi l'Eau's draft feels healthy and clean because of the presence of bamboo leaves, disregarding whether the well-known perfume designer Francis Kurkdjian has found his inspiration in the sea motives. It is one of those scents that do not smell too much of anything I know.

To my nose, the opening brings you fresh and sparkling sea wind with a few drops of blue breeze, notes of aromatic lavender, and just a little bit of bergamot. The result is awakening, refreshing, and invigorating.

When it comes to the heart, it evokes a spicy and rich fragrance thanks to prevailing cardamom and nutmeg. A generous touch of bamboo leaves puts an original accent creating a fresh and vibrant perfume. It is the phase I like most, the Zen truth. It smells like walking through a bamboo forest. Very soothing.

The scent continues its journey, and the dry down leaves its footprint dynamic and clean thanks to the moss, the precious patchouli, and the blue cypress. This pleasant fragrance reveals all the facets of fresh, spicy, woody, and aquatic accords, which bring you to life during the soaking summer days.

I happen to love it. Recommended for daily use, both for office and leisure time, very lovely in the summertime. Preferably designed for men, I don't see any specific age for wearing it, follow your instinct and flavor.
